    davewr58 got a reaction from William P in What Brands/Products Do You Want To See for Member Testing 2024?   
    I’d love to see Hireko’s Juggernaut Max Gold Titanium Driver tested. It has a lot of technology and is non-conforming with its head size and CT, but is a driver that most mid to high handicap players would love to see the data it produces.

    I’m 78 and have never used a cart. Walking is good exercise and gives you a feel for the nature around you because you’re not speeding down the fairway. You have time to look as you walk and, for me, it is very relaxing. The course I play has deer and wild turkeys galore, geese, an occasional fox and every now and then an eagle. I also find a lot of balls from the day before as I am usually the first player off the tee each morning.

    I'm 72 and Kathy is 69. Fortunately we are both in good health. We play and walk, a couple times a week, our home course The Hills at Portal right on the BC/WA border south of Vancouver. The course is aptly named with most holes requiring shots over valleys, or to elevated greens. So needless to say we need to wander up and down the hills pushing or pulling our carts. What a workout a round of golf on this course is. But you know, it feels great. Ya we are tired at the end of a round but what a great combination of play and exercise. We do take a cart when playing other courses that demand it, but I do think I play better when I walk rather than ride so we choose to walk if that is an option. I expect as I get older or my health changes I will likely need the cart if I want to keep playing, but for now walking is my preferred mode of chasing the silly white ball around the park.

    Plastic. They don’t break after one to two hits. Much better value for the money.

    I have an old Zebra from the 70’s probably and still use it occasionally. I’d love to try a new one and see if it’s really an improvement.

    davewr58 got a reaction from miamistomp in Poll: Driving Range Warmup Before Playing a Round?   
    I never use the driving range. If I had a pro watching and helping me for a lesson, I would. But I think most amateurs go out there and use the same imperfect swing they have on the course and gain very little or anything from it (except to loosen up). And if this is their main purpose, that's fine. To loosen up before I play, I just go through a series of stretching exercises to loosen my back (I'm old) and shoulders and I'm ready to go. It's much faster (and cheaper) than using the range. But, whatever works for you is generally what you do.

    I usually play the same ball until it is scuffed, even though I have many dozens of balls (I know, sounds crazy).
